Scott Wood's Dunk Fest


So maybe this is the highlight reel that you didn't know existed. Maybe you were expecting a video of Wood launching three's from outer space. My friends, I kid you not, here is a 2:16 long video of nothing but straight Scott Wood throwing down. When you watch this video you will realize that Wood fits in perfect with what Coach Lowe is trying to do. Keep your eyes open, because there are two times that Scott drives and dunks with authority...one of them being on a poor soul. Scott, after watching this video...2009 just got that much more promising. I mean we already knew you could shoot, this just happens to be the icing on the cake. Enjoy!

    My guess is you wrote "Sydney" b/c of all your coverage on Vandenberg. No worries, thanks for the video!

    Definitely can't wait for Wood to get here. The best part about that video are not even the dunks, it is the fact that about 80-90% were from him jumping in the passing lanes and stealing the ball. That is something that has driven me crazy with our team. Every time we have played Carolina lately, they just grab our lazy passes near half court and boom easy points. Nice to see a guy that not only shoots lights out, but he intelligent on defense too.

    I like the throw downs, but was more excited about the defensive intensity. Wood was constantly cutting off the passing lanes, moving his feet, and looking to humiliate the other team by scoring off of defensive plays. Also excited that most of the other top recruits in the nation specialize in getting to the basket. I haven't seen many videos of those guys shooting the lights out like Scott Wood.

    Good stuff. But you know what? I'm actually much more impressed by the active hands and steals that led to most of these dunks. Happy to see the flexibility as a scorer, but that defensive activity is *really* nice to see.

    I have a good feeling about this guy. I would not be surprised if he starts from the get go.

    ^Painter had an offer on the table before he arrived for his OV. No word on how it is going.

    My guess is that we press full court some man-to-man and even throw some junk 3/4 zone press. Even if we miss on Painter coming Lowe has stacked the deck on the type of depth and athleticism you would like to have in order to play ball like that.

    Scott Wood looks like he would be mad thief when and if we turned full court on some teams. Amazing the basketball IQ he already has.

    ^ I think you're right. You're going to see a lot of hard nosed man to man this year. You'll have a group of guys that really understand the defensive concept Sid has been preaching. If you've watched Lorenzo then you've seen his ability to really get down in a defensive stance, move his feet AND keep active hands....while with Wood you can see that his away from the ball defense is above average...he's always in the passing lane.

    Wow this is a side of Scott's game that I haven't seen at all. Defense is incredibly impressive. He really gets out into the passing lanes and clogs them up. I also liked how he used the other players body positions to get his hands in there. Like when a guy catches a pass and then turns to the basket, Scott comes in and strips the ball.

    Since a lot of folks seemed to be jazzed about this clip (and rightfully so), I want to stop and give our Associate Head Coach some love. We can all thank Coach Lowes' right hand man, former pg Wolfpack great Monte Towe, for the gift wrapped up in a "tear drop runner in the lane" bow that is Scott Wood.

    We should stop and apprerciate the old adage "Rome wasn't built in a day" when acknowledging the role Coach Monte (and all the other great Asst. on our staff) have played. The new Wolfpack program started by coming in late and playing catch up for the '07 class with only six scholarship players and no depth at either G position. In three staright years Towe has brought Javi, Julius and Scott into the mix.

    By years end I predict that our team we love is going to be playing some thrilling and well executed BBall and a big part of it will be the consistency, IQ and mental toughness these three bring every day. That's something Coach Lowe preaches and it's also something Monte Towe embodied as a player.

    The play @ 1:03 and the following play are great.

    I know this is just a clip of highlights, but it shows that not only does he have some defensive potential, he also has the ability to get to the rim in traffic and in quick transition.

    In the first play, he crosses-over in the half-court, then dunks on a kid. In the next play, he snatches the ball out of the passing lane (again), races down the court, and slams it home.

    From previous videos, Scott has a terrific shot, spotting-up or off the dribble. This video shows that his overall-game has even more potential.

    Thanks WPH! And thanks SW!

    "In the first play, he crosses-over in the half-court, then dunks on a kid. In the next play, he snatches the ball out of the passing lane (again), races down the court, and slams it home."

    In the second play after 1:03, he almost breaks the ankles of the little guy who tries to get in his way. (I meant to mention that in my first post.)
